Based on the book by Lene Kaaberbøl, whose books have been published in more than 25 countries, THE SHAMER’S DAUGHTER tells a strong tale of greed and betrayal set in a fantastical world of dragons and supernatural powers. The film opened domestically to excellent reviews a couple of weeks ago with local critics comparing it to the HARRY POTTER-series as well as the hit-series GAME OF THRONES. So far the film has made more than 160.000 admissions in the Danish cinemas.
